Grad Profile: @ThotzNet makes content organization easier and more accessible

Posted by Emma Tzeng on 2012-08-07

Grad Profiles highlight the personal and professional stories of Founder Institute Graduates from across the globe. 

This profile on Thotz, a Graduate of the Colombia Founder Institute, was written by Emma Tzeng. Co-founded in 2010 by Carlos Rozo and Andres Cifuentes, Thotz enables businesses and personal users to visualize, access, and socialize their content. 

It happens to all of us: you save an important file onto your personal PC and make a mental note of it; yet somehow, someway, it just isn’t accessible at the very moment you need it most. As common as these instances are, though, they also beg the following question: In today’s high-tech, ultra-connected world, why isn’t our information collected and displayed in a more intuitive, easy-to-access way? 

Colombia-based startup Thotz wants to make personal and corporate information more organized and readily available. With the Thotz web application, businesses and individual users can visualize, access, and socialize their content. Essentially, the product replaces the traditional files and folders model for content storage with a graphical platform that shows the stored information and draws connections to other content. 

“Technology must accommodate the ways in which people function,” the official website states. “In Thotz you will find an extension of your brain." 

Founded in 2010 by Carlos Rozo, an experienced information management professional, and Andres Cifuentes, a Google apps partner and software developer, Thotz operates in two different segments: its enterprise product,, and its user-targeted product,

Currently, the market for concept organization, cloud storage, and aggregation is booming and growing. Thotz hopes to sit in the center of these three categories by acting as a service for users who wish to store their content, find it their way, and aggregate it.

To date, Gmail boasts 250 million users, 16 million of which use Google Drive across 50 million personal mobile devices and tablets. Thotz’s vision is to bridge the disconnect between Gmail and Google Drive by enabling users to organize and sort their personal information in an intuitive, user-friendly fashion.

Thotz is free to use, though users who wish to enable more than one storage pay for additional services.
